The aneurysm makes the aorta expand and pumps more blood into the heart does it not....? Not good for the aneurysm or me, but how does it impede oxygen to the heart?
The ascending aneurysm is right next to the valve in the arch and has been in regurgitation mode for a few years now.. at first slight but over the years it has become a lot worse.. I just did not understand how that would lower the oxygen input to the heart?
About half of the cases of aortic [valve] insufficiency are due to the aortic root dilatation (annuloaortic ectasia)
There is very little plaque around the valves and yet they are all regurgitating.
Behçet's disease, ankylosing spondylitis, systemic lupus erythematosus, and various [other] collagen vascular diseases
I want to learn more about cardiac enzymes
Depending on the marker, it can take between 2 to 24 hours for the level to increase in the blood. Additionally, determining the levels of cardiac markers in the laboratory - like many other lab measurements - takes substantial time. Cardiac markers are therefore not useful in diagnosing a myocardial infarction in the acute phase. The clinical presentation and results from an ECG are more appropriate in the acute situation.
